More:You can now order 'secret' medicine ball drink off the Starbucks menu

The coffee company also plans to donate all leftover lunch items to local food banks through its Starbucks FoodShare program with Feeding America.

No date for the menu's national rollout has been announced yet.

The lunch menu comes amid a push from Starbucks to increase food sales at its coffee shops. The Seattle-based chain hopes to double food business by 2021, with its food options growing 1.5 times since 2013.

Starbucks already offers some sandwich and salad options, and it announced in December efforts to expand these choices. In February, stores debuted ice cream offerings in more than 100 Orange County, Calif. locations. Stores also took "medicine ball tea" off its secret menu last month, making it an official menu item.

The new options come as Kevin Johnson replaced Howard Schultz as CEO earlier this month.
